Hey, Today i finished my 20h Exposure on the Iris Nebula. In Fits.... but the pictures are not in RGB, i used RGGB, in Pattern, it is possible to get color in the fits?, or is is just possible with the cr2?

Yes it is possible, what camera do you use? Maybe you can try the "force cfa" option in tab 0 and reload the data? It may also be a case where you used a capture program that changes the cr2 files to fits for you, but is not adding the mosaic header tag in the fits file. This is a common issue, it's better to just use cr2 frames when capturing and processing using app.
